Justin Timberlake? Huh?

American superstar Justin Timberlake has revealed he wants to record a hit with Devon singer Chris Martin.
The 21-year-old singer told Radio 1 he was a big fan of Coldplay, fronted by Exeter University graduate Chris Martin, and would like to work with them.
The former boyfriend of Britney Spears was in the country to promote his new solo single but does not appear to have much chance of teaming up with the band.
The group is touring and Chris Martin, from Whitestone, near Exeter, is reportedly "extremely busy" at the moment.
Justin Timberlake appeared on Scott Mills' breakfast show on Radio 1 earlier this week.
He said: "I would love to work with Chris Martin. I'm so upset I'm not going to be here when they play in London this month.
"I've never seen a Coldplay show. Both albums are timeless to me already."
But a spokesman for Coldplay said: "I had not heard what he said but I am sure Justin Timberlake can have a successful career without the help of Coldplay.
"They are currently on tour and are too busy to consider this at the moment anyway."
Coldplay's second album, A Rush of Blood to the Head, went straight to the top of the charts after it was released last month.
